  • Senate treatment of selling shares

    Why has no one mentioned this horrible part of their tax plan on this site?

    The loss of the ability to use Specific ID in taxable accounts would basically all but eliminate the ability to tax loss harvest, among other tax management strategies.  :x

    Nobody likes to see "their loophole" go away it turns out, but the only way to really simplify the tax code is to eliminate loopholes and lower tax rates. Wouldn't it be awesome if there were no standard deduction, no itemized deductions, no credits and you had tax brackets that were like 5% on first $100K, $15% on 2nd $100K, 25% on 3rd $100K, and 33% after that?

    You could do your taxes on a post-card.

    But when you only drop some deductions and keep others, there are going to be winners and losers.

    Let's wait until the final law and then sort out what our new tax strategies will be.

            Oops. You got me. My bad. I'll just try to quietly walk away without embarrassing myself further.
